The U.S. is set to take on Portugal for their 2nd match of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
After Germany’s draw with Ghana, a win would place the U.S. firmly into the knockout rounds. With Portugal’s Christiano Ronaldo ailing, the U.S. certainly has a chance to do so, which would be huge for USA soccer especially considering Group G’s reputation as ‘The Group of Death’.
Below are some other American athletes who have been caught rooting for Team USA and consequently supporting the sport of soccer through social media. Who says Americans don’t follow soccer?
Let’s go #usa !! Get it done today!!!
As the greatest American Olympian of all time, perhaps it is only right that Michael Phelps leads the pack in supporting Team USA.
